As described directly from Nicki Franklin’s site:
This embroidery kit was the fifth issue of The Stitchery monthly subscription embroidery project from 2020.
Haven is a series of embroidery designs with a focus on home and the places we go to feel safe, cosy and happy.
This embroidery was inspired by the beautiful Chateau I taught at in 2019 with Erica from Wilderstitch.
The kit comes with pre printed antique linen (10"square), instructions and plenty of threads. The design is approx 11cm x 9cm
You will need to have a simple sewing kit to include small, sharp, embroidery scissors, an assorted packet of embroidery/crewel needles and an embroidery hoop.
There is a little colouring/painting required with this kit, just to get the walls of the chateau and the roof in place.
Our blog has a little guide of how to paint on linen and we recommend you look at this if this is your first time using paint on linen.
I think it gives a lighter effect than heavy stitching with this kit, and offers a little perspective and texture to the final piece.
